One Misty, Moisty Morning
Thanks to rain the past two days, this morning was blessed with a beautiful mist enshrouding Zephyr Hill Farm in mystery. This magnolia greeted me as I walked out the door to feed the animals.
Angel and Brandy's noses were quickly covered in a hazy mist of DE from their grain. Now that they are temporarily back in the same field (so Angel can be near a working hose for treating her injured foot), they have a daily contest to see who can snarf up their feed the fastest, thus getting the most!
Hero knows the routine, so he ran ahead to wait for me at Sara's gate. Perhaps he thought I couldn't find my way in the mist? Sara and Hero may look nearly the same size, but he weighs 55 lbs. and she weighs something over 775!
Her beautifully swelling belly deserves a close-up unobscured by the mist!
Heading back up the road, past the horses' pasture again on the way to get the newspaper, I could not resist this tantalizing glimpse of the fence line fading into the mist.
The mist covered the house from view, but left our beautiful giant oak standing sentinel.
The oat-fueled feeding frenzy over, Angel settled down to graze the dewy grass.
This black-eyed Susan dangled over the road like an errant ray of sunshine piercing the morning mist.
